Woof, woof. Woof woof woof. Woof. I need songs with dogs in 'em. Not about
dogs, mind you.

So I was listening to Tom Waits' "Buzz Fledderjohn
" during a run this week and was struck by how awesome it is that he's got a barking dog sampled in the front end of the song (right after the words "rottweiler, doberman," natch). It perfectly matches the grime and general grittiness of the song.
I tried to think of other songs that sample dog barks, and came up with Le Tigre's "What's Yr Take on Cassavetes
" and Jane's Addiction's "Been Caught Stealing
," which are also uniformly badass.
Can anyone else come up with songs that use dog barking to similar effect? Please do not mention "Jingle Dogs." I know about "Jingle Dogs." "Jingle Dogs" is not badass. Also, those are not actually dogs in "Who Let the Dogs Out?" They are the Baja Men, making fools of themselves.
